Sheri and I had a lengthy discussion with Michael and Bugzy about how to build pads to go on the ends of the lobata tentacles. The Temple Trees crew has lots of scrap expanded metal laying around. We sourced a bunch of detritus and went to town.
Over the course of two nights Sheri plasma cut the design, formed them into three dimensional shapes, welded the plates together, bent the stem and attached the pads to the stems. Quick, inexpensive and beautiful. What more could we ask for!
